Quicklight has redesigned their led base and released this new design. They have upgraded the L.E.D. housing and led. The new housing is much cleaner looking and much more water resistant; regardless if the pole is on or off the base. They have also upgraded to the newest Cree L.E.D., this has allowed them to make the whips brighter, more energy efficient, and produce less heat. The new design works on all the original poles.
